Know Your IX
Zoe is the Deputy Director at Know Your IX, a survivor-run and youth-driven organization working to end gender-based violence on college campuses. During her undergraduate studies at Columbia University, she founded the activist group No Red Tape and was the lead complainant in a prominent Title IX complaint against her school. She has also led legislative advocacy efforts on city, state, and federal levels to strengthen campus options for survivors and reduce reliance on the criminal justice system as a response to violence.
Zoe grew up in a queer family in the Bay Area, CA, but now lives and works in Harlem, NYC. As a second generation queer woman and a sexual violence survivor herself, she is committed to centering the voices of survivors and people of marginalized identities in anti-violence work, and building community-based solutions to sexual violence that do not rely on inherently violent institutions like the prison-industrial complex. She also works on sex workers’ rights, juvenile justice, abortion access, and prison resistance.
